Random Dozen!



1. How do you feel about "Gladiator" sandals also called "Roman" or "Jesus" sandals? A fashion yea or nay?



Definitely a NAY from me.



I would look like a stringed ham if I wore these... UGH



2. What is your favourite pizza?



Mmmmm supreme, with NO pineapple. Pineapple on pizza is wrong in SO many ways!






3. There are plans to sell roughly 1,000 items from Star Trek:The Experience in Las Vegas. This means that you couls buy Picard's chair for your family room. If not a Star Trek, what prop, background, set from what movie would you buy if you could?


Hmm, just the shoes from The Devil Wears Prada...all of them ;)

Failing that, Carrie Bradshaw's entire shoe collection;)



4. Name a local food or restaurant that your area is famous for.




Well, apart from growing citrus fruit, Mundubbera is famous for nothing. The less said about the cuisine available here, the better. LOL
We don't even have a coffee shop!




5. What is your current favourite snack?




Mmmm...cheeeeeese....not at all condusive to # 10 LOL
My fave snack...toast with really thinly sliced cheese. Tomato too if I am feeling adventurous;)




6. Hypothetical: You are required to be a reality show contestant. Which show would you choose based on your probability of success? (You cannot choose 'none')




A. Dancing With The Stars


B. Biggest Loser


C. Survivor




Well, yeah...I ruled out Dancing with the Stars immediately. I can't stand the show, and I can't dance. At all.


Survivor was out cause its, well, camping. I don't do camping. Or eating wierd insects.




So, seeing as I have a heap of weight to lose, Biggest Loser it is! (and I would get to meet the Cammando;))






Although I'd be MUCH better at Big Brother ;)







7. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being uninhabitable and 10 being cleanliness that meets the standards of OCD, how clean is your vehicles interior?





This is not my car.


I googled images for messy car, and this was the closest (just FYI...there are some cars out there that are truly gross, go on, try googling image results for messy car ICK!)


I'd give my car a 7.




Only cause my husband regularly cleans it for me;)


8. It doesn't feel like Spring until ........


I've popped a truckload of Zyrtec


LOL


Seems strange to be answering a question about Spring as we are heading into Autumn here!





9. Something that made you laugh really hard recently is....





It cracks me up EVERY single time.




10. Tell me about a goal you're working toward.







I reeeeeeally have to lose weight.

But I am sorely lacking in both motivation and will power.

This pic pretty much sums up how I am feeling about the whole exercise thing at the moment LOL




11. Share a thought provoking or inspiring quote this week


Okay, I have nothing....absolutely nothing...


Do you have one you would like to share?


Please! Provoke my thoughts!


12. Name one thing you do as a parent that you absolutely know will make your kids happy. If you're not a parent, feel free to substitute 'friend' or nomenclature that works for you.




Honestly, I don't know if I ever feel as if I am doing anything right for my kids. I am constantly riddled with guilt about how I don't do enough. However, one thing I know I do, is love my kids and give them a strong sense of family. I am also trying, from this young age, to encourage them to talk to Mick and I.

Every night at dinner we talk about at least one good thing, one bad thing, and one funny/interesting thing that has happened to us during the day. Makes for some interesting dinner conversations!

Every night, when they go to bed, I tuck them in individually, and spend a few minutes talking about the day. I try to use this time to find out about their friends and what happened at school. I use this time as insurance for the future. I am trying to let them know that I am there, and interested.
Who knows if this will make them happy in the future?? Certainly not me!


Soooooo....are you gonna join in? I'd love to come visit your 'Random Dozen!'

Oh yes. I'd take anything from the Devil Wears Prada. Completely forgot about that movie. Great answers.

BTW, small changes reap big results.

Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

It sounds like you have a lovely relationship with your children.

And lol at the LOLCATS picture. I love lolcats.

I'm with you on the pineapple on pizzas issue, hubs loves ham and pineapple, but it's just so wrong.

Agreed: pineapple on pizza is very wrong! Great answer to #3; I could definitely do Big Brother (or "Bother" as we say!); loved your pic of "Tracey"...I can relate! Sounds like you're a wonderful mom...time is the most precious thing you can give to your kids. Thanks for visiting! :D

Enjoyed all of your answers. But I agree pineapple on pizza is just wrong! And I love the relationship you have with your kids. They will always remember that. My daughter does she is 28, and I see her implementing alot of the same rituals we had with her 3 year old. Sounds like you are on the right track!
until next time... nel
